The Magician Tarot Card Meaning
You have all the tools that you need right in front of you. Now is the time to take action and use everything that you have gathered to manifest your dreams. Make sure that you are combining all of the elements (earth, air, fire, water, and spirit) to create the best outcome possible.
Make sure that you have a clear vision of what you want before you act. Your manifestation powers are astronomical and if you are not clear on what you want, you may get something that you don’t want. When you are clear, then is the time to take action and create what you want.
Manifestation takes time and work, so choose ONE thing that will bring you closer to your goals and really focus on it. Then move onto the next step.
The Magician Reversed Tarot Card Meaning
You are exploring what you want to manifest, but you haven’t yet taken action on it. You’re not sure if you have everything that you need and want to be sure before you take action. Pay attention to you intuition at this time and you will know when you have everything that you need. In the meantime, you can get clear on what it is that you manifest and I mean really clear, so when you have everything you need you can jump right in.
Reversed the Magician can also represent trickery, greed and manipulation. You are able to command the elements to do what you want, and if you are using it to cause harm or be negative, beware that the Universe believes in karma. It may be time to put down the wand for a while.
If you find that you are doing everything right, and your goals are not manifesting, the goals that you are trying to achieve may not be in alignment with your highest self. Take time to reassess your goals and especially you’re long term goals and see if something may need to change.
